9780140864373: My Name Escapes Me (Penguin Audiobooks)

This volume presents Alec Guinness' diary, small portions of which first appeared in the "Spectator" in the early nineties. It is a delightful collection of observations, anecdotes, and reminisces that range over acting, politics, and religion.

About the Author:

Alec Guinness has been a star of the theatre and film since before the war. His many triumphs include THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS, STAR WARS and TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY. Now in his mid 80s, he lives with his wife in Petersfield, Hampshire.

From AudioFile:

We who perform in the theater are well aware how silly, narcissistic, even dull a tribe we are. Nonetheless, we're constantly surprised to discover that the most accomplished among us share our faults. No one has enjoyed a more distinguished acting career than Alec Guinness. This diary reveals that, as a person, he's disappointingly typical -- in some ways more witty, in others more stuffy. Some surprises herein are pleasant -- his irreverence, his occasional insights into acting, his graceful writing style. His laconic reading style is a product of his advanced age, but, otherwise, his distinctive voice will send little thrills through the bodies of his fans. Y.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
